In the most famous instance of voyeurism, just one person in the town, a tailor ever afterwards known as Peeping Tom, disobeyed Lady Godiva’s instructions and “peeped” through the plantation shutters of his home. It is also said that Louis XIV used them so that he could continue to view the ladies of his court bathing in the garden but prevent the Versailles palace guards from being distracted from their duties and from looking in to the palace.
Plantation Shutters History.
Plantation shutters originated from the cotton plantations in southern America, however, their history begins much earlier than this. Window coverings have long been used to resolve the issues of light control, ventilation, privacy and security. When shutters served as the primary window covering, people in hotter climates used louvered ones to allow fresh air into the house.
Increase Value of Your Home
Issues of insulation, dust reduction and durability, as well as their classic style, have led to the increasing recent popularity of plantation shutters.
